Thanks to scottfrie for the beer!
A - Thick and foamy shell-white head. Slightly hazy orange-brown (almost chicken broth-like) color.
S - Belgian yeast and grain aroma, not exceptionally strong but enjoyable smell.
T - Syrupy honey-like malt flavors with spices present. Some hops that add to the bitterness.
M - Moderate amount of carbonation and full bodied.
O - Great overall taste, aroma and appearance. The alcohol is hidden incredibly well.
Serving type: growler

Cool name. Nice golden color a bit cloudy with a one finger aired head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Slightly sour kind of Saison like aroma with hoppy pine notes, booze and pineapple with mint.
Flavor with lots of pineapples, biscuit malt, oranges, bubblegum, cinnamon, herbal hops, candied sugar, lemon, bananas, spices, just a bit of Belgian funky yeast, coriander and green apples.
Medium body with low carbonation. I was quite surprised when I checked the alcohol of 9% abv which is well masked being there mostly as a flavor note.
Decent Belgian Strong Pale Ale with good mouth complexity, though I found it too sweet with lower drinkability, but if you like the style, it is a good option.

Pours reddish-orange, providing for a nice contrast to this grey day. White froth diminishes quickly.
Lemon, orange, orange peel, grain, yeast and taffy to the nose.
Tastes of more light, sour fruits, phenols, grain, sourdough, spice and sugar. Has a slightly metallic aftertaste.
Lighter side of medium in body. Smooth with a creamy middle.
